Lost Saga launches in NA, King of Fighters' Iori Yagami a premium character
MMO fighting game-slash-beat'em up Lost Saga has officially launched in North America, with a very special guest: Iori Yagami of King of Fighters fame. Everyone's purple flame-wielding lunatic is available in the game's cash shop, and for a short time those who add him to their fight roster permanently can get some nice goodies with their purchase.
Lost Saga offers a more fun-focused fighting game experience along with its co-op brawler content, featuring both PvE content and a traditional fighting game mode with on-demand character switching and an equipment knock off mechanic during fights. Each character in a player's roster can also be leveled up and upgraded, rewarding the repeated use of individual characters.
In celebration of release, the event "Iori's Curse.. of FREE STUFF!" is in effect until May 16. Players who purchase Iori Yagami during this time will receive the following in-game items:
- 10-hour Dwarf Potion
- An extra Hero slot
- 1 permanent gear chest
- The Horse Dance 2 emote (Gangnam Style?)
- 10,000 GP, the in-game currency
Something to note is that this is classic Iori and not the one seen in King of Fighters XIII stripped of his Orochi flame. Score!
Lost Saga is up and free to play for North American and Canadian residents. Those in other regions are out of luck, as publisher WeMade Entertainment USA has instated an international IP block sans these two regions.
